A Study of the Solvent Cement Bond for PVC and ABS Pipe Joints

 

Posters - Additional Information # 2001 Munich

To increase understanding of chemical jointing in pipes, the strength of solvent cement joints in acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) pipes was investigated, using mechanical tests and morphology studies. The strength of solvent cement increases with curing time, and it was found that the performance of ABS joints was significantly superior to that of PVC. This variation can be explained by differences in morphology at the interface between the cement and the polymer for the two different materials.

Root intrusion into sewer pipelines is a major concern, especially in areas with a combination of dry climate and vigorous vegetation growth. For elastomeric pipe joints to resist root intrusion, some national standards specify a minimum interfacial pressure that must be maintained between the elastomeric ring and the...

The C-ring test method is widely used by the water industry to determine the fracture toughness of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) pipes. The test currently forms a draft ISO standard (ISO/DIS 11673.2) and an interim Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS 1462.19(Int)) for fracture toughness assessment. Whilst results...

To allow long-term strategies to be implemented for the replacement or refurbishment of water pipelines, a planning model called the Pipeline Asset and Risk Management System (PARMS) has been developed. This model, although based upon life cycle costing methodologies has been designed to incorporate whole of life...

For rubber ring joints to resist plant root penetration, it has been reported and promulgated into Australian Standards that a sufficiently high contact pressure between the rubber and the pipe must be maintained. The evaluation of the appropriate interfacial pressure to be used has been under discussion for some time...

One of the characteristic behaviours of plastics (or viscoelastics) materials is the creep phenomenon, which is defined as the continuing deformation under a constant load with time. Although research on creep of plastics pipes has been widely carried out in other plastics, little work has been reported for creep in...
